this? >> soledad, obviously president obama is condemning this, calling it highly provocative. he issued a statement and said north korea's nuclear weapons and bollistic missile programs constitute a threat to u.s. national security and to international peace and security. and he continued the u.s. remains vigilant in the face of north korean provocations and steadfast in our defense commitments to allies in the region. obviously ther obvious obviously, there is grave concern. the north koreans are saying they have a different type of weapon, more sophisticated, more powerful. what is happening right now is that the u.s. and international organizations are monitoring what they -- what they can from this test. they are sending the united states, sending planes aloft and what they do, they have sensors on them, and they try to sniff the air in a way and figure out exactly what kind of explosion that was. because there are a couple of different types of explosions, and depending on that, we could find out how much they can do of testing in the future and perhaps create a bomb. soleda

dress up like a mailman. >>> president obama bailed out the auto industry to save michigan. what about the city of detroit? does it deserve a federal bailout, too? it's billions of dollars in debt, losing its tax base and today detroit is one step closer to declaring bankruptcy which would make it the largest municipality, municipal bankruptcy in u.s. history. back to the idea of the federal government bailing out detroit. such a thing is not unprecedented. mark binelli from "rolling stone" points out "when new york teetered on the brink of bankruptcy in the 1970s it was famously told in the headline of the daily news to "drop dead" but president gerald r. ford changed his mind and dumped out $2.3 billion in 1975 in federal loans. that was a lot of money. mark binelli is author of "detroit city: the place to be, the afterlife of an american metropol metropolis" and in detroit mark wolf. tom i want to start with you, the reason we're doing the story is because the state of michigan says detroit is on the verge of collapse. help us understand what's happening now. >> what's happened over

. if they are brought to claim it, they need to claim it quick. on january 13 of this year, president obama signed into law the 2013 intelligence authorization act which requires notification of any disclosure of national intelligence. we have not received any notification of authorized disclosures. have there been any authorized disclosures, to your knowledge? >> since you have not received any notification, there have not been. >> would you consider the information reported about the cameras and playback an authorized disclosure? >> i do not know which piece you're talking about. there has much discussion in the media and in the newspapers about this. i do not know specifically about any classified information. the fact that the administration may be going through a process to institutionalize our processes and procedures in an of itself is not a classified issue. those details that are classified, i do not know of any that came out in some of those reports. >> if there is classified information that is out there, and it was not authorized, was there a crime report filed relative to the play boo

's wrong with the company and president obama mrs. pelosi, steny hoyer and top harkin, all prominent democrats have all said "we don't have a spending problem in this country." they think what's wrong with our country is we tax too little. well most americans watching today, bob don't think we have a trillion-dollar deficit for four consecutive years because we taxes too little. they know it's because we spend too much. >> schieffer: but isn't what you're saying, governor, what people say is wrong with washington. here we go again. governor barbour says it's all the fault of the democrats will and the president says it's all the fault of the republicans and i want to know where there is some ground rathe 22 sides could get together and get something done. is there such a place? >> you're going to see on the sequester-- i believe you're correct the sequester will go into effect. >> schieffer: you do think? >> i do, and there are a lot of republicans that don't like parts of it, but they understand we've come to a point where we've got to take action about spending. and the democrats s

hundreds of thousands of dollars and could still face prison time. >>> in chicago, president obama again called on congress to act on his gun control proposals. the president spoke about gun violence at a high school in his hometown. president obama said it's not just a gun issue, it's also an issue of community and responsibility. the president also talked about one of chicago's victims of gun violence. 15-year-old hadiya pendleton. >> it's not unique, it's not unique to chicago, it's not unique to this country. too many of our children are being taken away from us. >> remember hadiya was gunned down just days after performing at the president's inauguration. her parents were at yesterday's speech as well as tuesday's state of the union address. >>> and on the subject of guns, we know now how christopher dorner's life came to an end earlier this week. it wasn't from smoke or fire from the burning cabin but from a single gun shot wound to the head. nick valencia has been following this story closely. that answers the question. but whose bullet was it? could it have been suicide? a bullet
? >> absolutely. for two reasons, ali. first of all, president obama is in the sweet spot of his presidency, the moment of maximum leverage that occurs for a president right after re-election. basically around 18 months at the start of a second term where a president can push through almost anything he wants. second of all, he's positioned to pull a nixon in china. just as only a committed anti-communist like nixon could go to china, someone like president obama could appeal to his base and still get tough entitlement cuts through as part of a grand bargain. this is a moment of rare opportunity but it takes presidential leadership and there's been lacking. >> one approach that republicans have put forward is the idea of a balanced budget amendment. >> the real cause of our debt is that our government has been spending $1 trillion more than it takes in every year. that's why we need a balanced budget amendment. >> republicans, margaret, are not blameless in this, bush era tax cuts, wars in afghanistan and iraq are major drivers. the spending cuts that a balanced budget amendment would requir
need and is president obama correct to say that tax revenue needs to be part of that solution? >> i would say we are half way there. unfortunately, we have done easy stuff. we raised taxes on rich people and we've capped discretionary send itting without saying exactly what we would cut. we haven't done anything to reform a tax code. we haven't done anything to reform our entitlement programs. to slow overrate of growth of the economy. we have to do that or we will never get to the promise land. i think president obama is right. that we still got to have some revenue in the mix. but again, the real focus has to be on reducing these entitlement costs. that's the big deal. >> senator, you agree that we need entitlement cuts but we also need revenue as part of the last phase of this deficit reduction? >> i do, indeed. you don't have to call it a tax increase. if you go into the tax expenditures, which are these loop holes, they are really spending any other name, earmarked, $1,100,000,000 of them. you can't spend your way out of this hole and can't tax your way out of this hole or grow
're going to hear a lot more about it especially with obama is doing to fight for equality. >> even the nfl, chris clouwe fighting for brights. >> brendan ay -- >> it's a tough one, brendan ayenbadego, players are fighting for equality. this is just another form of discrimination. i think that it's fascinating, there's never been a current nfl player who has come out and said you know what? i'm gay. they've never done it. all four major sports there's never been a current gay player. they waited until after their career to come out. that's fascinating to me. i think it's going to take, i think this will change. this is a time of evolution right now but i think it will take a differencemaker, a rosa parks or a jackie robinson to say here is who i am, i'll stand up for what is right and once that ice is broken i think we start to see change. >> the other hypocrisy in all of this, the nfl penalized a player, you know, during the super bowl, right, because he said some anti-gay remarks so the nfl is trying to promote this we don't do that, we want to pave the way for maybe gay players and durin
can take a listen to part of your interview with president obama yesterday. >> my sense is that their basic view is that nothing is important enough to raise taxes on wealthy individuals or corporations, and they would prefer to see these kinds of cuts that could slow down our recovery over closing tax loopholes. and that's the thing that binds their party together at this point. this is a major argument, obviously, we've been having for the last three years. unfortunately, i think republicans right now have been so dug in on this notion of never raising taxes, that it becomes difficult for them to see an obvious answer right in front of them. >> can i be frustrated here for a second? is that okay with a smile on my face? >> mm-hmm. >> where's he been? where has the -- has the president been vacationing for three months? four months? where has he been? >> he was on the phone with speaker boehner and mitch mcconnell. >> that's what i don't understand. you know, when republicans folded and raised taxes for the first time in 25 years, i asked on this program, what are democ
out today, ambitious state of the union speech. patricia murphy, is the re-elected barack obama perhaps overreaching? >> well, you know, i think it obviously depends where you're coming from. if you look at what he was talking about, these are a series of smaller initiatives, universal pre-k, the -- talking about the minimum wage. these are things that are actually relatively targeted, relatively narrow. i think some of his more liberal counterparts would like to see him go bigger and bolder. i don't think it was an overreach. i do think it doesn't quite add up. there is no money left in the federal budget for the new initiatives. that's where his new problem was with his speech. >> he says won't raise the deficit. amy holmes, some say ambitious. you say -- >> i agree with patricia. last night's state of the union was surprisingly modest. it was part george jetson, this vision of the future where our cars don't run on gas anymore, but he didn't have any specific proposal on how to accomplish that, other than we'll study it. he talked about an energy security trust led up by ceos
in washington seems in any rush to stop it. we now know that president obama and congressional leaders will meet tomorrow at the white house, but at this point it looks like nothing can prevent the fiscal hammer from coming down in about 40 hours or so. and as cnn's brianna keilar tells us it has the white house at odds with prominent journalists. >> reporter: after a week of touting the dire consequences around forced spending cuts would have, president obama softened his tone wednesday night in a speech to top business executives. >> this is not a cliff, but it is a tumble downward. you know, it's conceivable in the first week, the first two weeks, the first three weeks, the first month, a lot of people may not notice the full impact of this sequester. but this is going to be a big hit on the economy. >> reporter: republicans have said these predictions are nothing but scare tactics. >> it's time they get off the campaign trail and started working with us to govern or change. >> reporter: the president reiterated the charge of partisanship ahead of an 11th hour meeting on friday with congressi
this accomplished than he is harming the republican party. >> senator mccain, have you talked to president obama about this issue? >> i have not. >> what are the state of relations these days? >> i, i have great respect for the president. i hope and i believe that at some point we will all be meeting with the president on this issue because we need to coordinate with the administration. but, i think, i haven't seen a degree of partisanship overall as there is today but we are showing some signs of bipartisanship. this thing we just did in averting the nuclear option in the senate, this issue, i think that republicans are more inclined to let the process go forward and senator reid is more, more inclined to let us have amendments. i see, i think that when we are down to 11% approval rating, there was a favorability thing, different things are favorable. a colonostomy is viewed more favorably than a member of congress. we're kind of in bad shape to say the least. i won't view that line any further. i got up in line, anybody said in the airport anybody say you look a lot like senator john mccain. i
to work for facebook and did work there but left facebook in 2007 in order to work for the barack obama campaign. that was something that was anything but a sure thing. it was something that was consistent with a kind of things that chris coons has been talking about then and ever since which was trying to live a life that was going to have a genuine impact. a direct, positive impact on the world. i think are the words you have used. less than a year ago, he purchased control of the venerable -- a publication of the new republic, also in failing health, and has in the months made an awful lot of dust and cause an awful lot of interest because he made himself publisher and editor in chief, but he is actively engaged in reshaping it and has clear ambitions to make "the new republic" something among the most influential and most important magazines in the country. he is serious about high-quality journalism. that is the thing he talks about. but his focus is not just about digital technology. he is taking the venerable institution and journalism and looking at them informed by his deep kno
. he was 20 years old, lived with his parents. he had no criminal record. >>> president obama ratcheting up the pressure on congress to avoid forced across the board spending cuts, cuts that kick in march 1. the president spoke as first responders looked on. >> these cuts are not smart, they are not fair, they will hurt our economy. they will add hundreds of thousands of americans to the unemployment rolls. this is not an ob tracks. people will lose their jobs. the unemployment rate might tick up again. >> the president criticized republican ideas for avoiding the cuts because they ask nothing he says from the wealthiest americans or from big corporations. >>> just when you thought the government had run out of things to tax, oh, no. a houston suburb with a budget problem has started to charge a crash tax. start next month. drivers will pay up to two grand for road service depending on how bad their auto wreck is even if they don't call for help. i mean, if the county has to pay to help, you know, move those -- >> the pictures of the crashes that they were showing, horrific. a
president obama did his speech, i did a text analysis and they were quite analysis. >> he also offended some jews because of the rehabilitation of one of the holocaust denying roman catholics. let's talk a little bit about the contrast of this incredible pomp, the circumstance, the formality of the vatican and what we were talking about cardinal tagle of the philippines, we were talking about how he was a young and prominent cardinal and a bishop of the people who brings the poor and destitute into his area to have dinner and chat. >> before he went to the philippines, cardinal tagle was the bishop of a smaller diocese. the cathedral was in the main town square and people who were out of work and so forth were famous for sleeping in that area. a story has been told, a woman who had a chronic alcoholic for a husband who would sleep it off. the reason she couldn't find him, the bishop, tagle came out and invited him in for lunch. he was famous for riding his bike in his diocese or taking the bus, that kind of thing. it's that common touch that people find attractive. >> many of us who grew up
president obama weighed in urging the group to open its membership to everyone. he agrees. >> the boy scouts are unwilling to lift the ban they simply won't be relevant to a generation that decided to embrace lbgt brothers sisters, coworkers neighbors, friends. >> for now the ban remains in place. scout leaders say they need more time to consider and consult before deciding to whether to everyturn a century old policy. al-jazeera washington. >> that is an except from al-jazeera english, one. news programs that airs on that channel. bob wheelock, what is the lens or voice that your journalists approach their stories with? >> it is not any different from any other broadcaster i don't think. you look for the truth. you look to tell the story for the people and to give them a voice. we will go out and try to find central characters often, to drive a story, to try to give it, you know, something that you can invest in as a viewer. but, you know, essentially on a story like that it is a news story of the day. it is fairly cut and dried. we make a great effort getting all voices in. and then try to
